You know those giant teddy bears you can win at carnivals? The ones that take up an entire backseat or worse, can’t squeeze through the train or subway door? Well, those carny bears have nothing on Costco’s bears. Because everything is bigger and better at Costco. The superstore warehouse carries teddy bears that are nearly eight feet tall. Staffers reportedly need a forklift to haul them around. Yes, they’re that big.
Don’t believe us? See for yourself.
The 93″ HugFun bear comes in two colours and are as snuggly as you can get. When employee Daniel Gonzalez saw that a new shipment had come in, he texted his daughter, Sabrina Gonzalez, who jokingly replied that her five-month-old daughter, Madeline, needed one.
So, naturally, as he is an awesome and proud grandpa (and young, at 46), her wish is his command. Soon after, Daniel texted Sabrina another photo, this time of the nearly 50-pound plush toy next to his pickup truck.
Sabrina shared photos of daughter Maddie hilariously posed next to the big bear and they might be the best thing you’ll ever see.

We can’t even. The bear’s so big you can’t even see the person balancing little Maddie on its head.
Sabrina has since posted a video of what happens whenever the baby sees her $289.99 pal, which is being kept at Grandpa’s house because of how humongous it is.

Now we want one. Anyone have a forklift we can borrow?
